Read Poem: Don’t Try to Fix Me, by Scott Gore

You offer to help me
I’m grateful for that
But it’s not what I need
That’s not where I’m at

Your listening ear
Would mean so much more
It’d show that you care
And don’t have to keep score

I don’t need to be fixed
By you or another
I’m not your project
And you’re not my mother

I’m living my life
As best as I can
I’m learning to love
I don’t need your plan

I still welcome your friendship
But I want you to know
Don’t try to fix me
Or I’ll ask you to go
